Generating OUs in Active Directory

Asked By 0 points N/A Posted on -

I am currently re-organizing my Active Directory.

I am generating OU's for each department that has users, and the computers will substitute the OU's for each.

If I link a new computer to the domain, can I systematize a certain computer account and have it created in a specific OU?

And do I even have to do that?

I have two different offices and I like to separate the computers in each office and department.

Transferring the computer itself is an option but I want to avoid doing that as much as possible.

Any suggestions or opinions please?

Thanks in advance.

Generating OUs in Active Directory


In order to create OU Based collection, you will need to use the following query:

select *  from  SMS_R_System where SMS_R_System.SystemOUName = "Domain_name/OU_Patch"

You can just customize it accordingly to suit your situation.

In case you need to add a user to a Group by Selecting the Group, you will just use the following steps:

  1. You will just right-click on the user and then select Properties.
  2. You will then need to select the Member of tab and then click Add.
  3. Thereafter you will need to type the name or portion of the name of the group in the Enter the object names to select box.
  4. And then you will click the Check Names, and then the full group name will be displayed.
  5. Once you have done that you will just click OK two times to close the two dialog boxes.
